I had 4 ECT treatments, when I noticed that my depression was getting worse and that my short memory was gone. No the ECT treatments did not help me they made me worse. And the ECT clinic that I went to said they don't know when my short term memory will return. I'm sorry that it took me so long to respond back, I forgot that I had asked about this treatment. I had my treatments done a Pine Rest Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Dose anyone have any answers for me? These treatments also makes me feel suicidal, which I am battling just about every day. I am so very depressed.
